From The Mull Of Kintyre
A vastly experienced live act with over 500 shows under their belts, The Twisted Melons are one of the west of Scotland's best kept secrets, playing live relentlessly in small venues throughout the country while regularly producing and releasing their music 100% independently.
Comprised of the three Johnson brothers, the band have an uncanny sibling musical telepathy that makes every show a one-off. Moving effortlessly between psychedelia, hard rock, pop, funk, fusion and electronica, the band recall the great bands of the past while moving towards the future along their own path.
Their diverse sound has seen them supporting a wide range of acts including Boy Azooga, Be Charlotte, Otherkin, Blaenavon, Fufanu, The Vryll Society, Here We Go Magic, Mull Historical Society, Owl John, Rituals, Declan Welsh and the Decadent West, Pete MacLeod, Focus and Deacon Blue and appearances at festivals including XpoNorth, ButeFest, The Big Sit In, Oxjam, the Edinburgh Fringe and a headline performance at the closing night of the Mull of Kintyre Music Festival in 2017.
The Twisted Melons 4th album "West Of The Rock" was released on 1st April 2016 featuring the singles "Love Is A Drug" and "More Fool Me".
New single “Change Is Gonna Come” is released on Friday 29th March 2019 and the band play at the Kintyre Songwriters Festival on Sunday 5th May 2019.
